The story revolves around shy, cardboard-box-dressed trolls living underground with a boy named Eggs. The trolls are feared by the community living above ground because a rumor has spread that they snatch human babies. The boy Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright) teams with a girl Winnie Portley-Rind (voiced by Elle Fanning) to find the true villain and set everything right in a satisfyingly happy ending.
